Exposing lapses in security measures, two under-trial prisoners (UTPs) arrested on charges of murder have reportedly escaped from Titilagarh sub-jail on Saturday evening. The prisoners- Sumit Kumar Bihari and Susobhan Rana were lodged in jail for the last two and three years, respectively.

Both were found guilty of murder charges.

Sources said both Bihari and Rana were assigned computer-related work inside the jail. They had won the confidence of the jail officials by doing some good work inside the jail.

Taking advantage of this, the duo is said to have escaped from the jail.

The matter came to light after the jail authorities took attendance of the prisoners last night.

Two special police teams have been formed and raids are being conducted at multiple places to nab the escaped murder convicts.
